In Memoriam
Lovella Blanche, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benoni Trimble, whom God called home Tuesday morning, March 29th, was born near Lexington, Washington county, Iowa, November 2, 1880.

When about two years old she came with her parents to Ainsworth, Iowa, where at the age of ten years she was converted and united with the M.E. church and has since been a faithful member.

Her first mission and work for her savior was to influence and lead to God her aged father who went to his reward four years ago.

Lovella's influence in the home was keenly felt through her sweet music, which was her God-given talent, and her one delight was to cheer and brighten wherever opportunity afforded.

As a music teacher she was a success, because she loved her work and was love by her pupils.

During the winter of 1901-02 she attended the Chicago Training School, where she made rapid advancement in music, her favorite study. At the close of the school year in May, she went to Colorado Springs where her sister, Mrs. Dove Thomas lives, to continue her work in music.

Here, in December, she was taken with a severe attack of pneumonia. After three months' illness she returned to her home near Estherville, but soon a relapse followed, which resulted in her death.

Two years ago she was blessedly sanctified and has since enjoyed that perfect peace which Jesus alone gives to the wholly consecrated soul. This Christ-life within, was most beautifully shown by her sweet, patient, spirit during her prolonged illness of fifteen months. And though her sickness was a new trial, she was ever cheerful, hopeful and thoughtful of others.

While her bodily strength decreased her spiritual strength increased and her dying testimony was –

"Jesus Says Come." "Jesus is the Light of the World." "Goodbye All, I'm Going Home."

She leaves a mother, three sisters and one brother with hearts sad and lonely, because of another vacancy in the blessed home circle. But they sorrow not as those without hope, for we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

In transplanting this fair young blossom, God has not only shown his love and mercy, but has called us again to be faithful unto the end, that we too may inherit the blessedness of His kingdom and meet our loved ones who have gone before.

The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the M.E. church in Estherville, conducted by Rev. F. W. Ginn, assisted by Rev. Eggleston. – Contributed (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, April 6, 1904)
